What Came of the Stonewall Rebels
Art_Deco saidThanks, a wonderful retrospective I hadn't read before.
I was 20 in 1969, and in Midtown Manhattan when the riots were happening, just north of the Village. But not out then, in denial, learning about it from TV and newspapers, not involved, not considering it was something that had anything to do with me.
I now view it as one of my greatest personal failures to have not been a part of it. A reason I try to be heavily involved in gay causes today, to "make up" and hopefully be forgiven for my youthful ignorance. I suppose many of us have regrets in life, and Stonewall is a reminder of one of mine.
